How Effective Were Anti-Burglary Efforts?
A group of burglary victims was asked which items they had at or in their residence at the time of the burglary.
Some indoor lights were on
A security sign
Cars in driveway/parking lot
A burglar alarm system
Outdoor lights were on
Outdoor cameras or surveillance equipment
“Beware of dog sign”
*Because some respondents had multiple items, total exceeds 100%
